The National Yearbook Program of Excellence recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.
The Palos Verdes High School award winning yearbook program is led by Editors-in-Chief Angela Yang, Mira Chatterjee, Amy Moon, Sydney Tody and Allison King under the direction of Ms. Susan Pavelka Palos Verdes High School yearbook adviser.
“We are proud to announce that we have 98 percent coverage of our student body three times or more in this year’s publication. Yearbook is about capturing the voice of all the students, not just a select few. I think our staff accomplished that goal this year,” said Pavelka.
Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and in fall for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The Award was presented to the Palos Verdes High School yearbook program for achieving the defined criteria in each of three following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creation process.
“Jostens is proud to recognize those individuals who have acted as wonderful stewards by creating an exceptional yearbook for their school and community,” said Chuck Mooty, Jostens president and CEO. “Yearbooks are a critical part of telling a school’s story, and Jostens is dedicated to supporting yearbook staff members with state-of-the-art tools and resources that help celebrate moments that matter.”
The Palos Verdes High School yearbook program will receive a plaque to display in the yearbook area and a banner to display in school so the entire school community will be aware of the outstanding achievement.
